. i think it's wrong to say that cardinal archbishop of los angeles or the cardinal archbishop of boston are the ones chao covered up things. i think it's part of the institution to cover up things. and unfortunately, if you were going to tell me no one can go to the conclave who has participated in any type of cover-up, you would probably exclude every cardinal in the church. because unfortunately, that's the way the church has operated. >> and for those who hear these reports over and over again, these allegations, these cases, these settlements, does it matter at this point that we're getting these allegations at the highest levels, at the cardinal level, or does this become white noise after a while? or does it have the opposite effect? will people start to really take note? will this have a lasting effect, a detrimental effect, on the catholic church? >> well, it's negative to hear that spiritual leaders are involved especially protecting criminal behavior. because what we see is almost everything has to do with sexuality. and maybe a lot of these issues would be dealt wit
